You have to admire The Expendables franchise for having zero illusions about what it is: An aggro-action spectacular stuffed to the gills with movie stars by and large better known for their biceps than their acting chops. The trailer for The Expendables 2 trades precisely on that expectation: After a quick scene in which Bruce Willis chews off a vaguely threatening speech to a silent Sylvester Stallone, a metal skull spawns a crown of bullets and firearms, and each of the film’s stars is tersely introduced solely by their last name. My favorite part? That Jean Claude Van Damme is billed as “Also Van Damme.” Check it out below:
